I could never be described as green fingered. I am definitely more of a 'stick it in the ground and see what happens', type of gardener.
So this week's experiment could turn out to be a complete and utter disaster. I am attempting to turn this little lot...
...in to a huge bounty of food. Well, maybe a huge bounty is over-ambitious, but certainly enough to feed my three guinea pigs, with some lettuce left-over for the odd salad for us humans!
Step one is completed and the seeds have been planted, (those that can be started off indoors anyway). Which made for a very enjoyable hour's activity this morning!
On the thrift scale, the eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that I have reused those troublesome Pot Noodle pots (No.1 Son's latest food-fad), along with a variety of other tubs and even the odd loo roll tube. The wooden trays are left over from my soap making days and the actual plant pots were 'growing' in the shed, (they do that you know).
My outgoings were £32.00 on two sacks of potting compost and the seeds themselves, which is about the same as a few days grocery money. So, the pressure is on to make sure everything doesn't die! Meaning that I have actually read the seed packet instructions for once!
Keep your fingers crossed for some seedlings to appear soon!
